Why add this 1976-S Eisenhower Proof Silver Dollar to your collection?
The 1976 Eisenhower Dollar featured a single year issue reverse design celebrating the bicentennial of the American Revolution. A national contest was held to determine the commemorative bicentennial designs to be struck on the dollar, half dollar and quarter. The image chosen for the dollar coin was submitted by twenty-two-year-old sculpture student Dennis R. Williams. This 1976-S Eisenhower Dollar Proof coin was struck from a composition of 40% silver and 60% copper at the San Francisco Mint, with a final reported mintage of 3,998,621 coins.

The obverse, designed by Frank Gasparro, depicts the left facing image of Eisenhower, accompanied by the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "1776-1976" and the "S" Mint mark.
